About Neville Galea

Our Family has been in the tourist accommodation business since 1981. Thus I have been brought up in this environment and meeting clients and seeing that they are having a nice holiday gives me great satisfaction.

Neville Galea purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Neville Galea chose Island of Malta

This property like all my properties was chosen because we know exactly what tourists need due to our over 30 years experience in the sector.

Location location Location they say. And yes this apartment has an ideal location as it close is to all tourist attractions. Also the tourist will find all his needs within few meters of the apartment.

The apartment is also fully equipped for short or long stays.

We are always a phone call away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ho soggiornato in questo alloggio insieme ad altre 9 persone per più di una settimana. La struttura si trova a 2 minuti dal mare e a pochi minuti dal centro e dalla vita notturna (paceville); inoltre è dotata di tutte le comodità: due bagni (doccia e vasca), cucinino, terrazzo esterno, televisione, condizionatori (solo in due camere) e wi-fi gratuito. Abbiamo apprezzato lo spazio interno più che sufficiente a ospitare 10 persone e anche i grandi armadi dove poter riporre la biancheria e tutti i vestiti. La cucina è completa di tutto, peccato solo per la sala da pranzo che è dotata di un tavolo piccolo (abbiamo risolto utilizzando il divano è il tavolino del salotto). I condizionatori funziona perfettamente (attenzione ai consumi), ma si trovano solo in due camere; anche il wi-fi funziona bene, a patto però che non si colleghino tanti dispositivi. I proprietari sono molto disponibili e offrono la possibilità di prenotare una navetta dall'aeroporto e di organizzare attività varie come escursioni alle isole vicine. Nel complesso siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti dalla struttura e anche dai prezzi molto competitivi; consiglio a gruppi numerosi. Francesco Brezza

Excellent Location and Agency

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very soacious, well maintained and fully equipped. It's location in Sliema is just a few blocks from bus lines to every location on the islands. Small stores are lass than a block away selling fresh fruit and vegetables. Neville and Ruth are exceptional hosts and ensured I was happy with every aspect of my holiday.

Appartamento stupendo

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento bellissimo, pulito, ben organizzato ed attrezzato.

Vicino a ristoranti, market, spiaggia, negozi e fermata bus per tutte le direzioni.

Proprietario gentilissimo e sempre disponibile.

Abbiamo soggiornato in 9 con bambini nel mese di luglio.

Vacanza indimenticabile.

Consigliatissimo.

Very clean and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is conveniently located with plenty of room for families. The experience was great. The reception agent was wonderful. The satellite television has plenty of English channels. The internet is fast and dependable. The property is very clean and well-maintained. I would recommend this property to everyone.

As a disclaimer, Malta is expensive for utilities. As such, they are not included in the price of the room. Normal consumption runs around 2 Euros per person per day. To cover the owner for extreme cases of consumption, you will be required to leave enough to cover the worse case scenario up front. Plan on leaving a 30-35 Euro per day deposit for utilities on arrival. You get back what you don't consume at the end of your stay, but the amount of the deposit can surprise you if you're not prepared for it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments and it was a pleasure to host you. Indeed the apartment has an excellent location and is fully equipped. yes, we keep the rental prices low and water and electricity is not included in the price. This is clearly stated under the price table and also communicated to the guest before they book. It is once again specified in the rental agreement. We only charge for it so that guests save energy because energy prices are expensive in Malta. In your case, the bill was very low and reasonable. The deposit requested on arrival is not a deposit for water and electricity. This is a damage deposit which is also pre agreed and is refunded again in cash on departure. we hope you will be our guests again! Thank you ruth and neville

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Clean and tidy apartment in great location - 5 minutes from the sea with wonderful swimming opportunities. Lovely long promenade in Sliema with lots of restaurants to try out. Ease of access to rest of Malta by excellent frequent bus service. Nearby ferry service to Valetta is a fabulous way to get to the city

A wonderful flat in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Blue Waters. Its location is perfect for

swimming at Balluta Bay, eating and shopping in Sliema, catching the

buses and ferry to Valletta and beyond... That's why we come back year after year! Steph was very friendly and helpful, as was Ruth when I had to phone a couple of times. The flat is well equipped with

everything we need, and we appreciate that you organise the taxi to and from the airport.

Sliema is the most important tourist town in Malta. It has the longest seafront promenade and is full of life all year round.

Sliema has a long rock beach. In many areas there are lidos and nice kiosks. Along the cost there are also many playgrounds and nice seafront gardens.

Bars, restaurants, ice cream, shops, cafeterias, car hire shops, discos, nightclubs, casinos, water sport outlets etc. are all close by.

Sliema is also the best for buses. In fact to visit all tourist attractions in Malta you just need to take 1 bus! Also close to the apartment, from Sliema Ferries, there are many boats that depart daily to more secluded beaches and do one day cruises.
